Our visit was incredibly amazing!!! These little ones crept into our hearts from the minute we saw them!
It was really such an eye opener to see that all they actually want is attention and affection. It was heart breaking but I am so glad that we were able to give them a morning of love.
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to spend time with them. We dropped off a whole lot of goodies with Tracy and Jono for the kids!

20 FEBRUARY 2016
Our day went really great. We got there at about ten, and organised ourselves while all the children slowly made their way down to the hall. We split them up into four big groups as we had 4 “stations” of games. We rotated the groups untill they all had a turn at each station. We played games such as a relay with an egg and spoon race, apple bob, and digging for smarties, another station was “Open Gates”, another station was a game where they had to race to open a chocolate wrapped in newspaper with a knife and fork. Halfway through we had a short break with a glass of cooldrink and a packet of chips.
After the stations,we broke for lunch of hotdogs and cooldrink. One of the volunteers kids said a beautiful grace for us. We also presented the staff with a big bottle of bubble bath, a box of hug in a mugs, and a box of biscuits, so they could also relax! One of the children at the home gave us a beautiful thank you “speech”.
After lunch, we sorted some make up that was donated to us and let all the girls choose one item. Much fun was had painting nails, putting on lipstick and eyeshadow and mascara. Even the boys and staff were made pretty.
We also had bags of clothing that was donated. We sorted this in age groups and handed them out so that each girl got something. Unfortunately all the clothing was girls. But the boys were given a donation of cricket wickets, bats and balls, a rugby ball, soccer ball and a netball. Also a swingball set, and quite a few plastic balls. We also had bags of donated toys which we left for the staff to sort out.
We really had such an awesome day, and will be doing this again soon!
